wow, I photographed this same rock and trail...not sure how long each trail stays around, probably depends on the weather conditions...I was there in Oct. 2008. had quite an incredible visit...just me, myself, and I all alone on the playa for hours. Literally. I camped at the racetrack campground where there was one other group who left early in the morning..Didn't see another soul till I drove through the closed (but passable, the sign said) road toward Saline...probably all total, 8 hours without seeing anyone else...

@sierragrl... Thx for the story.

I was there the last week in Nov '07. I arrived late because I took a side trip into the Alabama Hills for the first time and couldn't get myself to leave. Got to the Racetrack with 45 min. of sunlight left with plans to spend the night. After sunset I had a bite to eat and realized I wouldn't see sunlight for another 13 - 14 hours. All alone and with a dead notebook battery and nothing else to do I decided I needed to leave or go nuts waiting for morning. Hope to make it back someday, I have many great ideas for new shots.
